Pinewood is a great school with great staff. There is a great connection between teachers, staff, and the PTA. The teachers go above and beyond to help their students.

It is a title I school and majority of the kids that attend are on free lunch. I have had positive interactions with the staff. I believe for the resources, they do well. The teachers always respond quickly. The do their best to protect the students. The main playground is not accessible to the public, which would explain the reception of the last reviewer. Overall, no complaints.

Pinewood is a great school teachers there are extraordinary. Teachers work together to make the school the best it can be. All of the staff members do their best they work together to make their classrooms the best they can be to help students learn more and achieve their goals. The school has a lot of useful resources that they use to help students grow their brains. Principal Sexton does her best to make the school the best it can be. She has a lot of assemblies that are very helpful for students to understand life the best they can. Teachers like Ms.Brinkley, Mrs.Ferraro,Mrs. Greenberg, Mrs.Martin,and Mrs.Ely do their 110 percent best to make their classrooms the best it can be for students. All of the teachers there are great and hard working. I think this school is great. This message was written by a 5th grade student at this school. I will be graduating this year. I will really miss the school and staff members. The school is awesome!!!!

I could not be more happy with Pinewood after having my child here for the last 2 years. I have never been to a school that has such a positive atmosphere. The teachers are so engaged and go above and beyond to keep my child challenged. You see the mutual respect between the principal and the teachers every time you visit. The principal is top notch. It is a shame so many people in the neighborhood surrounding the school can not get past looking at statistics alone (which get better every year, btw). Test scores alone don't make a school what it is, it's the principal, teachers, and parents that are involved that make it such a great place!

Pinewood is a great school, full of teachers who's passion is evident at every event we attend. The irony is because of its Title 1 label many Madison Park Neighborhood children choose to go other schools which is sad. The school has the latest technologies & and a great park in front of it. This schools scores would be much higher if the kids who live in the neighborhood actually attended there. Some of the kids that go here just need stronger parent involvement. Teaching young children is not just the public schools duty, its the parents duty as well. We are all responsible for the next generations well being and growth.

Pinewood Elementary is an excellent school . The teachers are always nice and friendly and always holding nice conversations. I have a 9 year old attending the school and her teacher is always informing me through phone calls or letters regarding my child progress. So I say it can't get any better than that!

400 neighborhood families chose to send their kids to other schools....wonder why? My child was so behind due to this school.

I have been impressed every single time I have entered the school building. People aere always freindly and the staff goes above and beyond for the children. This is the place for my daughter and two sons, without a doubt. We may have higher income than many that attend but we are not going to pay for private school- and with a school like Pinewood why would you? Go and visit and you will see!

I have had a very positive experience so far! My daughter is very happy at Pinewood, and I feel the staff is taking the school to the next level. Focus is definitely on learning and building community. I am very welcome in school and given a lot of opportunities to get involved and be a part of my child's education.

The teachers have great attitudes and the principal is interested in each student. The teachers are available to the parents to discuss any topic pertaining to their child. Teachers also encourage students interests and turn them into learning opportunities. The building is very clean and well kept.

They have a well-structured schedule, the school is clean, the children are learning very well. I got to eat lunch with my Grandson there and the teachers and aides were very friendly, courteous, efficient and competent, as well as compassionate and loving toward the children.

Pinewood is nicknamed a 'low-poverty' school, but the teachers are dedicated and student achievement increases every year. The principal is excellent.
